I am on lantus and humalog and as the sugars come down the weight gain goes up I. I am walking everyday even though the legs kill me, but am still putting on weight. I am afraid that the weight will cause the sugars to be harder to controll, no to mention i'm already big enough.. Any suggestion or advice would be helpful.

Yes Harlan is right, I limited my carb consumption and lost weight. Another thing is some Insulin will put weight on you. Dan

uh lantus causes some weight gain… but also… good control causes weight gain without a signifigant change in eating habits. Lower the carbs lower the weight. Also watch eating high fat with any carb.

I'm on lantus and I can't lose any weight. I've cut down on the size of meals and exercised alittle more but I still can't lose. I'm tempted to give up and just eat what I like and forget the rest.

I had to cut almost all carbs from what I was eating and boy was that hard.But the gain stoped and I started to drop some , And after my Bs setled down I was able to add some carbs back in to what I was eating and still no gain. Thank god! I am still keepping it low on carbs, as best I can.

But it did work for me and I hope this may help you
